    First, i've seen that there's som posts on dir-825, so sorry if it's some kind of repost though the posts i looked through were closed.

    So i brought a D-link dir-825 equpped it with dd-wrt and the fun began:

    1) On my main computer, running windows7 everything works perfectly. no trouble at all.
    2) Also works perfectly on: neighbours laptop (some lenovo-xp), an iphone, an ipod, an android phone, an old Dell-laptop (xp), an Acer Aspire 1 (xp)

    so far so good...

    3) Hardly works on two older computers running xp: I find and connect to the network, however i get only low/very low signal and a disconnect now and then.

    Tried to change location of the computers in case of some sort of interference -> no change

    Tried to change pci-cards, usb-antennas etc -> no change

    My windows7 computer has an internal DWA-547, originally one of the older computers with XP had the same card. Tried to swap for DWA-160(USB) as well as an old Gigabyte card.

    Tried with the supplied D-link cd and without, running them in "normal" windows network setup.

    Also tried to play around with DD-WRT without any success.

    Anyone got a clue?

    Thanks in advance
